What you’ll be working on as our Content Writer

We’re looking for a Content Writer to supercharge organic growth and support on copy across the company.

In your first year at Filestage, you will:

  • Write high-quality blog articles to level-up our SEO and product marketing. Use relevant keywords in all the right places while making sure content offers value to our readers.

  • Research niche topics to write content that resonates with our target personas. Reach out to professionals for interviews or quotes to add gravitas to your content.

  • Brief teammates to design images and create videos for articles. Suggest ideas, share references, and make decisions on placement for maximum impact.

  • Transform blog articles into bitesize content for the newsletter and social media. Collaborate with the Content Manager and Demand Generation Manager to distribute our content far and wide.

  • Support other teams with copy and content editing. Craft UX copy for new features, tweak sales materials, edit help articles written by customer success specialists, and more.

  • Maintain Filestage’s brand voice and writing style across all your content. Give users a consistent and enjoyable experience whenever they’re in our world.

Life at Filestage

We believe people are more productive when they can choose their own schedule. So we’re proud to offer fully-remote roles that give you the perfect balance between work and life.

Here are some of the benefits you can look forward to at Filestage:

  • Work from where you’re happiest and enjoy a flexible schedule. We’ve been fully remote from the start, giving you the opportunity to meet people all over the world and broaden your horizons.
    • For this role, we’re looking for someone based in Europe to make sure there’s a high time overlap with our team members, customers, and partners.

  • Meet up in real life. We all travel together at least once a year (in normal times) at our team retreat to have fun and get to know each other.

  • Enjoy a strong team culture. We’re a group of knowledge seekers, reflective thinkers, clear communicators, goal owners, problem solvers, and team players. These are the values we strive for to help us achieve our mission.

  • Join a happy team. We’ve been rated five stars on Glassdoor by our lovely team. You can take a look at our reviews here.

  • Create a workspace that suits you. You’ll get a €1,500 budget for hardware, as well as €500 to buy whatever you need to do your best work at home – including a computer, webcam, or standing desk.

  • Get 36 days of holiday. Plenty of time for city breaks, summer escapes, and everything in between. You’ll also get a half-day on your birthday to give you a chance to celebrate!

  • Continue to grow and develop your career. We care about your development and want you to be able to learn new things! After six months in the company, you’ll get a budget to be able to use for personal development.

  • Make your voice heard. We trust our team members to make the best decisions to achieve their goals, so you won’t have to put up with micromanagers here.

  • Say goodbye to pointless meetings. We practice what we preach when it comes to productivity, so you can expect flat hierarchies, fast iterations, and no bullshit meetings.

Job requirements

What you’ll bring to the role

You have over three years of experience working as a content writer or copywriter. Now you’re looking for a new and exciting challenge that has a huge (and positive) impact on the way people work.

Here are some of the things we’d like to see from you:

  • Excellent knowledge of SEO principles and how to apply them. You can take target keywords and use them to create natural content that offers value.

  • Experience creating blog content that ranks. You’ve published regular content to help a business grow their blog, drive traffic, and win leads.

  • Examples of copy for a range of channels and formats. You can turn your hand to articles, social posts, emails, and everything in between.

  • First-hand experience of nightmarish review and approval processes. From conflicting feedback to endless email chains, you’ve seen it all and use it to fuel great content.

  • Clear understanding of how your content impacts the business. You know which metrics matter, so you check how your work is performing and push to make it better.

  • Strong communication and organizational skills. You’re at your best in a remote team and stay in touch with your teammates to keep projects moving forward.
